Protect yourself and your family! Find the best legal help possible on time. Do not procrastinate and underestimate the legal issue-timing had proven to be crucial! Do not try to save money if you do not know the coincidences of such behavior-it may result in severe damage. Research your lawyer, ask for referrals, check his/her ethical conduct with the bar association. Inform yourself about law, get in writing the proposed actions, seek second and third opinion, DO NOT TRUST and settle for lawyers word only! Unfortunately there are many lawyers that would not stand by their word and worse they could even go against you especially in divorce cases. Get everything in writing, clear and provable.
